PART II - BOOKS
CHAPTER XIII - JANE AUSTEN

manuals of dancing and gardening, tradesmen's advertisements, views, plans, etc., they have the most wonderful power of stimulating the reader and causing him to forget he is in church ; incidentally, they purge his mind of the lamentable Hugh Thompson. Never again will he tolerate illustrations which illustrate nothing except the obscurity of the artist. Here is the real right thing. Here is a mezzotint of `'I'he Encampment at Brighton,' where the desires of Lydia and Kitty mount as busbies into the ambient air. Here is the soul of Mrs. Rushworth in the form of a country house with a flap across it. Here is Jane Fairfax's Broadwood, standing in the corner of a print that carries us on to Poor Isabella, for its title is ' Maternal Recreation.' Here are Matlock and Dovedale as Elizabeth hoped they would be, and Lyme Regis as Anne saw it. Here is a Mona Marble Chimneypiece, radiating heat. Mr. Chapman could not have chosen such illustrations unless he, too, kindled a flame-they lie beyond the grasp of scholarship. And so with the rest of his work ; again and again he achieves contact between the life of the novels and the life of facts-a timely contact, for Austen was getting just a trifle stuffy ; our fault, not hers, but it was happening.
The edition is not perfect. Pedantry sometimes asserts itself ; when Persuasion was published with Northanger Abbey in 1818, its title did not appear on the back of the volumes ; but why should the inconvenience be perpetuated in 1923 ? And there is one really grave defect :. Love and Freindship, The Watsons, and Lady Susan have all been ignored. Perhaps there may be difficulties of copyright that prevent a reprint of them, but this does not excuse their almost complete omission from the terminal essays. There are many points, both of diction and manners, that they would have illustrated. Their absence is a serious loss, both for the student and for the general reader, and it is to be hoped that Mr. Chapman will be able to issue a supplementary volume containing them and all the other scraps he can lay his hands on. There exist at least two manuscript-books of Jane Austen. The amazing Love and Freindship volume was extracted out of one of them ; what else lies hidden ? It is over a hundred years since the authoress died, and all the materials for a final estimate ought to be accessible by now, and to have been included in this edition.
